RIVERVIEW COTTAGE, MYSTIC: LARGE WATERFRONT HOME ON QUIET COVE

Mystic House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Riverview Cottage is one of Mystic's finest waterfront locations. The house, boathouse, and barn are perched directly on the Mystic River. It includes 1.25 acres of quiet land with mature trees and is completely air conditioned. It is an ideal location for families who want a quiet refuge of kayaking and canoeing in close proximity to Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic Aquarium, historic downtown Mystic, and the neighboring beaches of Rhode Island and the Mystic area. Riverview Cottage has a long, waterfront porch furnished with comfortable wicker and rockers as well as an even larger balcony above and a terrace adjoining the lower porch. The house is situated on a large tidal cove populated by osprey, herons, egrets, swans and ducks. A fragrant border of honeysuckle runs along the waterfront sometimes attracting hummingbirds when in bloom. It includes a full kitichen, well-stocked library and a comfortable studio-apartment over the detached garage. The property includes a large boathouse the owners use for storage.

Keywords: Waterfront, water sports, kayak, canoe, boat, bird watching.

About Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager

The house belongs to a local family that raised four children there. The family spent many years living and playing in this tranquil park-like setting.

Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1996

Why Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager chose Mystic

Mystic is between New York and Boston and an easy trip to Providence, Hartford and New Haven yet it offers superb access to beaches, boating, local seafood and world class museums and entertainment.

What makes this house unique

In addition to canoeing, kayaking and birdwatching, the location is a favorite because it is on a scenic road near nature trails just above downtown Mystic and located near the Mystic Aquarium, and Mystic Seaport. This is a historic home.

A Grand Finale!

  • 5 of 5
We used this beautiful property to host our family and friends in a farewell celebration! Our host was outstanding! He met us upon arrival explained all the neccessaries and left us to enjoy - and that we did. Our only regret is that we didnt book one more night. We've already recommended this property to several friends. We would definitely remt it again.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
This place is perfect! The pictures can't do this property justice. We spent many hours out on the porches. It is secluded but not far from town. The 2 one man kayaks and 2 person canoe provided hours of on water entertainment and exercise. Definitely will be back next summer!

Everything and more....

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the cottage was to celebrate the graduation of three (3) cadets from the USCGA. We had no problem fitting three small families for a total of nine adults. The house and location were perfect for our week of graduation activities in Mystic, New London & Uncasville. The house was clean, the kitchen was well stocked, the rooms were spacious and the view from the porch was spectacular. We spent many hours relaxing on the porch observing the swans, geese, ospreys, cormorants and those guests that used the kayaks and canoe. We prepared several meals where we invited another family of four and had more than enough space to cook and serve without running into each other. It was a pleasure meeting you Paul and our common bond through the Academy made the stay extra special. It was difficult to leave.

Riverview Cottage in Mystic

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time in Mystic. My 5 siblings and I surprised my Mother for her 80th Birthday. She absolutely loved it and that all her kids got to spend time together and relax. With everyones lives being so busy, you don't get alot of quality time. The house was very clean, just like the pictures and even better. The beds were very comfortable, my brother sleeps on alot of couches and he said the pull out couch was the most comfortable he's ever slept on. There is plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was fully stocked with all kinds of dishes, pots, utensils, anything you could need. The outside view was gorgeous and we basically stayed outside from the time we got up until the sun went down. My brother had fun Kayaking on the river and there was beautiful white and black swans in the river. We loved sitting out on the porch and upper deck and we lucked out and the weather was great. My sister loved the house right away and wants to book it for her family. We are thinking maybe we will book it again next year as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone for a really nice, relaxing getaway.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at the house while in town for a wedding. We comfortably fit my family of three, my sister's family of four, two grandparents, and an aunt. The kids loved throwing rocks in the river and taking a canoe ride. And there were even some kids' books and toys for them. We also enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire and coffee on the porch in the morning with the lovely river view. I wish we'd had more opportunities to use the fabulous kitchen. One caveat - the stairs are steep so those with disabilities might struggle to access the bedrooms.
